Product Details

This Taiwan Wok (IRWK001) is a heavy-duty iron wok. Woks are primarily used for stir frying, but can also be used in many other ways, such as in steaming, deep frying, braising, stewing, or making soup. This bowl-shaped pan has several advantages - it spreads heat evenly, uses less oil for deep-frying than a traditional deep-fat fryer, and ensures that sautéed food tossed during cooking stays in the pan and does not end up on the stovetop. A good wok is indispensible when cooking traditional Chinese food, and can put to great use in most commercial kitchens.

Customer Reviews

14" Cast Iron Taiwanese-Style Wok is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I ordered a loop handled wok from the same website I found this wok on. I was impressed with the other 14" wok that was ADVERTISED as 19ga carbon steel wok. . I then began looking for another wok that was heavier with a stick handle. This wok was advertised as a heavy duty cast iron wok and even being over $6 more I decided that I would order it for the heat retention I needed for outdoor cooking and deep frying. I received this wok today and opened the box and found a thin iron wok of the same ga as the other wok I had. Nothing like it looked on the web site. Not cast iron as I'm used to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not cast iron Bought this wok through staples, it came from FSW. It is not cast iron, first clue is the welded on handle. Cast iron is very hard to weld usually cast in one piece or attached mechanically. Bigger clue it weighs 3+ pounds not 7+ like I would expect from cast iron. It is painted with a black lacquer that both stinks and is sticky. I have cleaned it with lacquer thinner and the black is still coming off. Do not buy this wok.

This Thunder Group 14" Taiwan Wok (IRWK001) is constructed of cast iron. This is the original and most traditional material that woks are made out of. A cast iron wok has better heat retention. Over time the heat will build up, making this wok perfect for residential chefs that may not have the high BTUs necessary for the best quality of wok cooking. A carbon steel wok has less heat retention, and this actually gives the chef more careful and precise control of the wok's temperature and creates a nice hot spot at the bottom of the wok. Carbon steel is also a bit lighter than cast iron, so this is something else to consider.

When cooking with a round wok on a regular gas range, you will need to use a wok ring. More information can be read here: How to Buy a Wok. The last part of the article outlines wok rings!
